29 OCT 16 Venus

Lovely shot!

It would make a great 'desktop background' :)

Venus is an easy spot just after sunset, but it does dissappear pretty quickly into the haze. It's going to be quite close to Saturn later this month as well.

I'm guessing that should be "SEPT"? :)

Actually, I should have typed "01 OCT 16" as that was when the shot was taken.

After earlier posting images of the "old" Moon shot 29 SEP 16 I guess that date was imprinted in my psyche.

Tried with binos from IOW (St Mary's) Hospital last night but even though it had a thin-crescent marker within

5 degrees of it, the thing played hide and seek amongst the contrails towards southampton and I lucked-out.

I have been down to Sandown beach a couple of times trying to get a low clear easterly, but its evaded me this summer/autumn so far.

I'm currently in Tenerife where the advantagious declination is currently offering excellent naked eye views of the arc of Venus, Moon, Saturn and Mars.

The seeing has so far been too poor to be worth using a telescope but today things have changed with much steadier solar Ha images so hopes raised for tonight.    :icon_biggrin:
